Adieu réalité

Reality is the lingering silence,
on the other end of the line.
Reality is parents who don't listen,
for they don't have the time.
Reality is waking up,
to realize you were crying,
or breaking up because
you were always fighting.
Reality is the crack in my voice,
when i strain to hit the note,
or the feeling you get before crying-the lump in the back of your throat.
Reality is the arms around me
that make me feel safe.
Reality is watching everything move-though you're standing in place.
My reality keeps changing,
shedding its skin to start anew.
Perhaps i'll find a reality,
in which my dreams can come true.

Wow.  That was great and you captured exactly what everyone- what I- feel when you are so beaten down but still hoping, still dreaming.  The fact that we are dreaming for dreams was just caught.  Great job!!!
